desire…noble, defenseless desire seeks its want
you find it within yourself…your happiness you flaunt
tension deliciously mounts with numerous increases as you jaunt
your heart runs, ignoring the geo-political thread detente
…like the black stallion in the dark night, speeding onward without delay
…like the blue wave cresting over itself, heedless of any obstacle in its way
…like the brilliance of a summer sunset, streaking its copper orange passion hues through sky’s roadway
your heart knows no bounds
… turns in every possible direction
flounders… stumbling over its own emotions…no selection
turbulent joy, no honorable mention
your heart runs and runs…
…oblivious of what is not there
…oblivious of the blank stares
..oblivious of the one way flare
until…you see you are running alone
until…you feel unrequited desire…no one home
until…you capture your sigh, realizing your heart was on loan
dear Celestine, thank you for your distinct words! and for being such a faithful follower!
Absolutely Fabulous Jane…..
thank you, Nancy!
to steal one of your words – delicious
oh my…I am so honored for you to comment! You are absolutely the BEST poet!
I love the tempo. It reminds me of a cross between Allen Ginsberg and “It’s all right, ma (I’m only bleeding)”. Beautiful summation.
You got it! I haven’t read Allen Ginsberg–not sure who he is–a hippie of days gone by? seems that his name rings a bell—but you CERTAINLY understood the message! Thank you for visiting my blog! and for your comment!
Hello my friend
I really enjoyed that. As I have said to many before, I am no expert on poetry but I know what I like.
Despite the main body of the poem following with strength and beautiful imagery I was somehow waiting on the ‘until’ coming.
Don’t know why so I will just put it down to brilliant writing.
Hi Steven, thank you for visiting and leaving a comment! I always LOVE comments! Well–this one was close to home—always easier to write from what one experiences. Thank you for your encouraging words! You honor me so much!
Merci beaucoup, Mich!
This speaks volumes ma’am and somehow I can relate to it. Beautifully written. 🙂
Amazing…what a poet you are…write on…
you are so kind…thank you…i am glad you found it “amazing”—Did you read what it said on the “Black Stallion” poster?,,,
Great images !!!
